Ipswich Town drew 1-1 with Barnsley this weekend and we take a look back at a classic game between the teams in 2000 – and the biggest-ever between the two sides.
They met at Wembley in the 2000 play-off final to determine the last promotion place to the Premier League.
It was a nervy start to the game for Town, with goalkeeper Richard Wright conceding an own goal in the sixth minute.
But the score was brought level in the 28th minute from a Tony Mowbray header.
The second half however is where Town shone, with Richard Naylor managing to chip the ball over the oncoming keeper to give Town the lead, six minutes later and Marcus Stewart headed home to make it three.
Barnsley did manage to pull one back in the 78th minute from a penalty by Craig Hignett.
But Town fans were sent into delirium as Martijn Reuser burst through to net a fourth and fire Town into the Premier League.
